Hoptown Ninja Warrior takes over Stadium of Champions Saturday to benefit the Joy Closet

It’s almost time for the spirit of competition to fill the air at the Stadium of Champions on Saturday for Ninja Warrior—and it’s all in the name of raising money for a good cause.

The Joy Closet is bringing this opportunity to Hopkinsville on Saturday starting at 9 a.m. that day, with different competitions running throughout the day, starting with the father-son competition, then moving to the team competitions at 11 a.m., before the course is open to everyone starting at 1 p.m.

Joy Closet Executive Director Heather Gray says this competition is open to everyone, no matter of athletic ability, so don’t let the traditional Ninja Warrior styling scare you off.    

Tickets are going fast, so Gray says go ahead and make sure you get yours now by going online to joycloset.org—tickets get you a ton of goodies the day of.

All money raised goes back into Joy Closet to help them support the foster care and kinship families in the community.

There will be food trucks on hand that day, so even if you don’t want to run the course, you can still swing by and grab something to eat and watch as other people give it a shot.  $5 at the gate will let you get in to be a spectator. There will be other activities happening there for little athletes under the age of five, which is the age minimum to run on the course.
